The Wendy Thompson team was great! We were first time home buyers, and they made the process more simple for us. They were prompt with responses, patient with first time buyers (and all the many questions I had), and honest which is something I was nervous about being inexperienced. I truly would recommend everyone to go through these people when buying a home!! I would not have asked for a better experience!

My dream was to have my newborn daughter in our newhome. She was due in three weeks and the initial closing date was in about 4 weeks. I thought it would be impracticable to close in time for my baby but Wendy and her team made it happen. Such is the level of care and commitment of the Wendy Thompson Lending Team. They go out of their way to make their customers surprisingly happy. Thanks Wendy!!!

Heartfelt FHA Advice from Me to You
Many people have heard that an FHA loan allows you to make less of a down payment and allows a few “scrapes” on your credit report. However, that doesn’t mean an FHA loan is automatically the best fit for you or your family.
Here are a few things we think you should know:
It’s Ok to talk to a lender BEFORE you pick a Realtor or go house shopping.
You may still be able to get a loan from us, even if you’ve been turned down elsewhere
There are lots of financing options, so don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and talk to us. A short phone conversation answers a lot of questions!
You CAN get everything the online lenders promise from a local lender
In everyday terms, the FHA program was created to put families into homes without stretching their finances! What does that mean?
Down Payments as low as 3.5%
Gift funds are allowed for the down payment
No closing cost options may be available
No income limit restrictions
In order to allow these more flexible financing terms, borrowers are required to pay for mortgage insurance which protects the lender in the event the loan defaults. There is an up-front premium (typically 1.75%) paid at the time of closing, and an annual premium which is escrowed and paid monthly.
FHA loan math can get complicated quickly! So while it’s a great idea to pre-qualify online and see what the numbers are, it’s best to schedule a short follow up phone call to discuss your situation and get a firm estimate on the important numbers.
